Renee Young was a guest on the In This Corner podcast, where she spoke at length about her new Backstage Pass show and the infamous Miz and Daniel Bryan Talking Smack segment.

Young first explained what her ‘Backstage Pass’ show is in relation to the WWE Universe and why she chose to hold the show on Instagram:

“I was doing ‘Backstage Pass,’ which was something I was doing on my own because there’s something there of using Instagram and being able to go live because I have 2+ million Followers on Instagram, but why not be able to broadcast to them on the type of content that I want to do, but it’s a tricky thing. I feel like there is definitely something there that I want to sort of flush it out, maybe get a logo made, maybe some merchandise, but I’m going to continue to work away at it.”

To many, the hugest moment in Talking Smack history was when The Miz had a shoot promo on Daniel Bryan, while Miz was Intercontinental Champion. Young spoke at length about that segment:

“That was such a pivotal moment for the show of course. That is what set the tone for what ‘Talking Smack’ could be, also kind of opening up that space for people and being able to turn it into whatever they needed to. That really breathed a new life into The Miz’s career from that point. It did stem from obviously so much truth from The Miz – if he doesn’t feel he is being used, or if he feels that he is not being used a certain way, he is very vocal about that, and if you give him a live show it’s like, ‘Here we go. We’re going to do something, what are you going to do?’ He was like, ‘Alright, I’ll be on there.’ I wasn’t sure where that was going to go. I wasn’t sure how to navigate it.”

“Him and Daniel Bryan, when they were face to face and some of the stuff that they were saying to Bryan at the time was such a sensitive subject of Bryan being unable to wrestle, and seeing that look in Bryan’s face when Miz was telling the truth about where he was currently at the time, it was like a real heartbreaking moment, and that was when I knew I had to get in because I realized that either somebody is going to cry or get a punch to the face. You’ve got to imagine at some point these two have to have something.”
